1 DHS/U.S. Customs and Border Protection - Technology Solutions Program Office (TSPO) DHS/ Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) October 31,

2 Purpose Provide overall UAS program overview Program Description System and Emitter Overview 2

3 DHS/ UAV Program Description Provides Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS), operations, maintenance, technical support, pilots, and sensor operators to surveil the Southwest border of the United States. Over the next several years UAV border surveillance will improve sensor/video surveillance capabilities of the current, monitored base system through persistent 24 hours per day / 7 days per week surveillance; integrate new surveillance technologies (aerial sensor suites), and increase interoperability with other law enforcement agencies and initiatives. 3

4 Background UAS use as part of National Objective Establish substantial probability of apprehending terrorists and their weapons as they attempt to illegally enter the United States between the ports of entry Deter illegal entries through improved enforcement Apprehend and deter smugglers of humans, drugs, and other contraband Leverage Smart Border technology to multiply the effect of enforcement personnel The UAS has demonstrated an ability to enhance operational effectiveness of interdiction elements as part of the National Objective in the areas of: (1) search of high activity areas; (2) remote sensor alarm response; and (3) integration of apprehension operations that enhances situational awareness 4

5 DHS/ UAV Procurement Schedule IDIQ T&M Contract for UAS, operational, maintenance and integration support services (Government owned contractor operated) Release RFI w/specification 4/13/05 4/29/05 Pre-solicitation Notice 5/10/05 Issue Synopsis / RFP 6/21/05 Receive Proposals 7/19/05 Technical Evaluation/Source Selection 7/22/05 8/05/05 Contract Award 8/26/05 Conduct Flight Operations 9/28/05 5

6 DHS/ UAS Operational Site Layout 6

7 DHS/ UAS Platform Configuration 7

8 DHS/ UAS Line of Sight (LOS) Overview 8

9 Telemetry C-Band data link Command C-Band data link Frequency Telemetry 5250 MHz MHz Command 5625 MHz MHz Power 10W (both) The LOS link segment consists of a pair of simultaneously operating C- band data links that provide dual redundant, full duplex, digital, narrow band channels for uplinking commands to the aircraft and downlinking aircraft health and status to the GCS as well as dual redundant analog (NTSC) sensor data channels delivering aircraft sensor data to the GCS. 9

10 Frequency L-band 1.6 GHz Iridium Data Link Power < 2.5W Narrowband SATCOM BLOS data link is based on the commercial Iridium Low Earth Orbit satellite network. An Iridium call from one ground location is passed up to the nearest satellite (on L-band, 1.6 GHz), then forwarded to the nearest satellite above the called party and then transmitted again at L- band down to the ground and supports both a full duplex voice link and a full duplex command and telemetry link. 10

11 Ku-Band WB SATCOM (future capability) Frequency 12,000 MHz - 18,000 MHz Power 50W 11

12 AN/ARC-210 RT-1851 Frequency MHz FM MHz AM MHz AM MHz AM/FM MHz FM MHz AM/FM Power 23W (HR Smith S4 Ant) 15-23W (Chelton Ant) An Iridium modem on the aircraft connects to the ARC-210 VHF/UHF transceiver that communicates, via a blade antenna on the top of the aircraft, with ATC, ground, or aircraftbased nets. The Iridium modem on the aircraft is connected to the aircraft s communications relay suite to allow full interaction between the pilot and other relay users. 12

13 Wulfsberg (RT-5000) Frequency FM = MHz AM = MHz Power FM = 10W nominal AM = 15W nominal Commands from a GUI in the GCS sent via data link (C-Band LOS Iridium or BLOS SATCOM) to the Wulfsberg Control Head, allowing the pilot to set frequencies, modulation, and encryption (Type 3 DES and AES), and perform Over the Air Re-keying (OTAR). In addition, the pilot can control the mode of operation of the system to simulcast and/or relay (in-band or cross-band) voice to or between both transceivers. 13

14 AN/APX-119 IFF RT-1861 Frequency TX = /- 0.1 MHz RX = /- 0.5 MHz Power Peak Power Output = 500W +/- 2db FAA certified Raytheon IFF Digital Transponder combines Mode IIIC/Mode IV/Mode S capability to operate throughout international, civil, and military airspace, meeting IFF and ATC requirements. 14

15 Lynx II Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) Frequency GHz, 2GHz bandwidth Power 98W Multi-mode radar that includes spotlight, two stripmap or search and GMTI modes. It features Coherent Change Detection (CCD) that can detect minute changes between two SAR images taken at different times. The system SAR resolution is 0.3 to 3 meters in strip mode, and can image up to a 10 km swath. 15

16 ARTEX ME406 Emergency Locator Transmitter (ELT) Frequency Mhz ± 2 khz Power 406 MHZ: 37dBm±2dBm (3.16W Min to 7.94 W max) (440ms/50sec) PERP or EIRP for 24 hours Automatically activates during a crash and transmits the standard swept tone on MHz. Every 50 seconds for 440 milliseconds the 406 MHz transmitter turns on and transmits an encoded digital message to the Cospas/Sarsat satellite system. 16

17 DMR-200 TRACKER Frequency TX = TO MHz RX = TO MHz Power EIRP: 0 dbw - 9 dbw Beacon tracking system uses a portable beacon/transmitter (INMARSAT D+ with GPS receiver) that provides a continuous, affordable positional update to a dedicated, monitoring satellite. Each beacon is a registered asset providing both latitude/longitude and unit identification embedded within it's data transmission package. 17
